There's a load of gamers who post here that may know what you mean:

My fiancé had the first fear game and it freaked me out. I hope he doesn't get the second.

New fallout! Hooray!
Or boo... I'm not convinced it'll be any good yet.
On the plus side, obsidian made kotor and have people from the first two fallouts working on it.
Bad news is that bethesda get final say on what happens and no doubt will be using the same tools and mechanics that fallout 3 used.
At worst it'll be like an expansion pack, which Isnt so bad.

I've completed FEAR 2, and while it's mostly easy, it's still a pretty solid game.

I'm currently just waiting for this game to come out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQoMELyEYFQ

It's also a 'rape simulator' where you can 'sodomize anyone you want' according to some American journalists... :rolleyes:

You're learning T-fish. This is excellent. You'll have a 360 by this time next I reckon. New MAss Effect is out next year I believe :D

Bought CoD4 the other day.
Only rented it last time I played it. Shame I can't play it til I've finished work and can't play it online til I've finished uni for the year :(.

Since I've run out of books to read, I started a new campaign on Empire: Total War. I'm playing as 'Great Britain' this time.

I also just played through The Pitt on Fallout 3. Pretty nifty, and I enjoyed the freedom of choice in this one. I turned my back on the slaves. 8)
